Onyx: a translucent, generally layered, cryptocrystalline calcite with colors in pastel shades, particularly yellow, tan, and green. The typical finishes for onyx are:
Polished (glossy surface, which brings out the full color and character of the stone; it is not generally recommended for exterior use, or commercial floors) Honed (satin smooth surface with little or no gloss)
Abrasive (a non-reflective surface, usually recommended for exterior use)

Slate: a very fine-grained metamorphic rock derived from sedimentary shale rock. Characterized by an excellent parallel cleavage and entirely independent of original bedding. Slate may be split easily into relatively thin slabs.
Polished (glossy surface, which brings out the full color and character of the stone)
Honed (satin smooth surface with little or no gloss)
Abrasive (a non-reflective surface, usually recommended for exterior use)

Shellstone: a sedimentary stone sharing characteristics of limestone, with fossils and shells embedded in its body. Shellstone is a relatively soft, porous stone that retains less heat than denser stones.

Marble: that ranges from granular to compact in texture, that is capable of taking high polish, and is used especially in architecture and sculpture (as hardness, coldness, or smoothness).

The typical finishes for marbles are:

Polished (glossy surface, which brings out the full color and character of the marble; it is not generally recommended for exterior use, or commercial floors)
Honed (satin smooth surface with little or no gloss; recommended for residential and commercial floors)
Abrasive (a non-reflective surface, usually recommended for exterior use)
